Rapid hatching in the monogenean parasiteAcanthocotyle lobianchi from the skin ofRaja montagui is stimulated by urea. Structurally similar to the urea molecule, the following analogs of urea provide amino groups, carboxyl groups, or combinations of these, but fail to stimulate hatching at concentrations of 1 mM in seawater: methylurea (MU); 1, 3… CONTINUE READING
